Biographical / Historical

Woman’s Hospital of Baton Rouge opened its doors in 1968 after 18 physicians came together to create a hospital that would concentrate solely on the needs of women and infants. The Woman’s Hospital Records collection highlights the activities of the nursing staff from 1984 to 2008. Nurses were responsible for creating events and presentations regarding women’s and infant health. During this time period, many nurses gained local and national recognition for presentations, educational programs, and research. The collection puts particular emphasis on presentations and research done for Southeastern University and Snowmass Institute as well as their work with daughters and aging parents and childbirth.
